Septimus Winner also went by the pseudonym of Alice Hawthorne. He composed a number of songs, wrote poetry, and taught music -- lessons in his music shop were given for a number of different instruments. Having edited over 200 volumes for more than 20 different instruments, Winner brought music to the general public like no person before him. Most of his original music was written for children and included "Listen to the Mocking Bird," "Ten Little Injuns," and "The Deutcher's Dog (Oh where, oh where ish mine little dog gone)."
